Local Consolidations for Multiple Data Variations

To create and evaluate different organizational structures, convert the base structure to a local copy to bypass the single data representation rule—see Converting Server Consolidations to Local Copies. This enables you to create variations in the organizational structure without compromising the data on the server.

For example, to create variations of an organizational structure without affecting the original consolidation structure on the server, open that consolidation structure from the server and use Convert to Local Consolidation to create different versions locally. You can manipulate these copies without changing the original.
